Literature flourished in Fatimid Egypt where poetry occupied a prominent status because the state at the time had the grounds for creativity and refinement. God conferred on it a magical nature, enthralling beauty, fertile imagination, and abundant grace which were consolidated by the openness of its people to other societies. Since, the period did not receive its true assessment, the paper aims at enlivening one of its interred poets, namely, Mu’ayadul-Deen as a poet characterized with political, religious, and literary traits. He promulgated the Ishmaelite culture in the Islamic east. The study includes a preface, an introduction, and five chapters, and a conclusion where the most important results the study reached are demonstrated.
The introduction sheds light upon aspects of Mu’ayadul-Deen age, his life, and his scholarly status.
Chapter one tackles the subjects of his poetry where panegyric was the most frequent genres in his poetry. Chapter two studies the structure of the poem, the stanzas, and the most significant preludes that enthralled the poet. Chapter three deals with structures and utterances where the study bifurcates into two sections; the first studies the singular utterances and the linguistic phenomena whereas section two focuses on the structure of the verse like the predicate style, composition, forward and backward, separation and connection,…etc.
Chapter four is dedicated to imagery and the way it forms which relied on the stretch of imagination in forming that imagery where the chapter falls into two sections; the first one is the sensuous images whereas the second studies the mental imagery.
Chapter five studies the rhythm in his poetry where it divides into two sections; the first concentrates on external music which in turn falls into two parts; the first deals with the meters used and the second on the rhymes. The second section studies internal music and rhythm according to the alphabet because of the ramification of rhythmic phenomena in his poetry.
The conclusion contained the most prominent results of the study.
